TheEconomic Commission for Africa and NKC African Economics (Oxford Business Group) will hold on Wednesday 26 May, 2021 a joint webinar under the theme “Best Practices in Job Creation, lessons from Africa.”
Over the last year and a half, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a major negative impact on Africa’s efforts to fight unemployment and underemployment among its population.
The pandemic is currently threatening to push millions of Africans into extreme poverty, erasing at least five years of progress in fighting destitution. Given the continent’s demographic trends, this situation will worsen further if not addressed effectively.
This joint webinar will gather experts’ feedback in preparation for an upcoming study by ECA and NKC economics on employment initiatives carried out across Africa, and the features and areas of intervention the most successful initiatives in common.
